update_policy_template#

VerifiedPermissions.Client.update_policy_template(**kwargs)#

Updates the specified policy template. You can update only the description and the some elements of the policyBody.

Warning

Changes you make to the policy template content are immediately (within the constraints of eventual consistency) reflected in authorization decisions that involve all template-linked policies instantiated from this template.

Note

Verified Permissions is eventually consistent . It can take a few seconds for a new or changed element to be propagate through the service and be visible in the results of other Verified Permissions operations.
